E3 2015 is just around the corner, meaning that major publishers are lining up to showcase their wares in the shadow of Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. One of whom has more to prove than most.
2014 saw Ubisoft dragged through the mud for numerous mistakes, consumer-unfriendly decisions and intellectually offensive gaffes. With luck, E3 2015 will put them back in our good books. Here's what we expect from their press conference, what we want and just as importantly, what we don't.
Not to start on a downer, but my wish list for games I want from the Ubisoft presser seems doomed to fail from the off, as I can't see how they'd fit them in with the games that have already been announced. But in a perfect world we'd be seeing a new Prince of Persia game, ideally one that gives me some goddamn closure on the 2008 original (not gonna happen).
A new Rayman title is certainly feasibly, as it wouldn't require a huge team to work on, but again, I just don't see it happening. You'd expect Beyond Good & Evil to have something to show after all these years, but I'm remaining pessimistic in the hopes I'll be wrong. I'd like to see Far Cry 5 become a reality and ditch last-gen so the series can evolve from the fun but safe fourth entry.
What will we actually get though? Extensive looks at The Division and Rainbow Six: Siege. I'm ready to be excited about The Division, I'm just so close to caring about it and need that little bit of brilliance to get the game out of the grey post-apocalypse box it's currently sat in.
